Bulls horn in

AFTER a pre-season that has seemed to go on forever, the Noble Park Bulls are finally ready to begin their Eastern Football League first division season.
The Bulls travel to East Ringwood to play the Kangaroos in round one, a match certain to give a good indication of where both sides will figure this season.
Noble Park has lost a number of leadership players, including William Sangster and Adam Quinn, who have hung up their boots, while Stuart Nagle, Nick Courtney and Stephen Finlayson have left the Bulls to pursue careers elsewhere.
Nagle is playing for Keysborough Football Club in the Casey Cardinia League.
Bulls’ coach Shane Burgmann said his side, which crumbled in last year’s finals, was again aiming to play at the business end of the season.
“We’ve picked up some great players, including a ruckman Jeremy Everitt,” he said.
Other recruits include Nathan Tiberi and Victor Currie, a former Clayton Magpie, who won the Southern Football League best and fairest last year.
Burgmann said a number of younger players would be expected to take the next step in their development.
“A few younger players will step up and play an increased role,” he said.
Lloyd Williams is a player recognised as a potential team leader and Bulls followers can expect another exciting season from the speedy midfielder.
